Written by Gabriela Vatu

ABC is getting a new show this winter, and it's a legal drama that focuses on the true story of Isaac Wright Jr., who was in prison for a crime he did not commit. We plan to watch For Life online, so join us in doing the same.

As we already mentioned, For Life is based on Isaac Wright Jr.'s story, where he becomes a licensed attorney while still in prison. His work helped other fellow inmates get their wrongful convictions overturned, before finally managing to prove his own innocence.

The show features many famous names, and not only among the cast but also behind the scenes, seeing as 50 Cent, also known as Curtis Jackson, is among the executive producers. Also worth the mention is the fact that Isaac Wright Jr. himself is part of the list of executive producers for the show. Nicholas Pinnock plays Aaron, Indira Varma plays Kate, and Joy Bryant will take on the role of Marie.

When and Where to Watch For Life?

For Life is scheduled to premiere on ABC on February 11th, 2020, with new episodes airing every Tuesday at 10 PM. It is unclear exactly how many episodes we will get to enjoy here, so we'll have to wait and see.

How Can I Live Stream For Life?

In today's world, we are always on the run, so we love to enjoy a lot of our content when we are on the go, whether we are listening to music, watching the newest videos, keeping up with the latest news bulletins, or watching some of our favorite shows, we all use our devices. Watching TV online is something that makes perfect sense because there are a lot of platforms that were created specifically to help us out. One of the best platforms to help you watch ABC's For Life is Hulu, which is a really cool service that has a single bundle of channels.

Start your 7-day free trial on Hulu today! If you want even more content than the bundle has to offer, you can add a couple of channel packs, as well as plenty of premium networks. The Hulu app works on a wide range of devices, so you certainly have at least one of these at home, as we mention iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, Roku, and more. (Note: ABC is a channel that broadcasts in select markets only, which means that if you live in an area where the channel is not available in, you will need to get a little bit creative to watch it all.

Other Ways to Watch For Life

YouTube TV - Another cool option that you can look into it is YouTube TV, which has a single bundle of channels. ABC is part of this bundle, but you can add more content by picking any of the available premium networks. There are no channel packs to add here, though. One of the coolest things about YouTube TV is that all subscribers can enjoy unlimited Cloud DVR storage space, and all recordings can be saved for up to nine months. Users can watch content on up to three devices simultaneously and can create six different profiles.

How Can I Watch For Life When Traveling Outside of the United States?

The constant problem for people who travel often is that they lose access to their subscriptions as soon as they leave the United States. This happens because there are licensing deals in place that need to be respected, and which prevent platforms like this from streaming content in territories they are not allowed to. The situation can be solved simply by changing your IP address, so you appear to be back in the United States instead of whichever corner of the world you are traveling to.

If you don't know what tool to use, we can recommend ExpressVPN, which is an app that has thousands of servers all over the world and makes use of some really great privacy features.

Here's how you can use ExpressVPN to watch For Life and many other shows:

Can I Watch For Life on the Network's Website?

Well, the ABC website comes with a live stream that you can enjoy. The catch, however, is that you will need to log in to an account if you want to be allowed access to it. In order to do this, you will need credentials from your TV provider, which can be one of the live TV services we already discussed or a cable company if you have yet to cut the cord. (Note: The ABC live stream is geo-blocked, so if you're traveling outside of the United States, you need to be prepared to use a VPN to access it. You can learn more about it by clicking here.)

Can I Watch For Life With a TV Antenna?

ABC is one of the channels that continues to broadcast over-the-air, which means that you can enjoy the channel with the help of an antenna. In order to do this, you will need to buy one of these devices, which are rather cheap and enable you to watch dozens of networks for free.

We do have a suggestion before you jump at the chance to buy an antenna, which is to check a site like NoCable so you can find out more details about which channels are available in your area to start with, and how far the broadcast stations are so, you will know what range you need your device to have. Also, make sure to check the devices we listed above in case any of them is the right fit for you.

Can I Binge-watch For Life?

Well, this is certainly an option because new episodes from the show will be uploaded to the ABC website. In order to watch them, you will need to log in to an account by using the same TV provider credentials we already mentioned. ABC shows also end up available on Hulu, so you can also solve the binge-watching problem by getting a subscription to Hulu's on-demand service.

Can I Purchase Episodes and Seasons From For Life?

If you enjoy the show enough to want to have it available for you anytime, anywhere, then you can also buy the episodes or the full seasons from platforms like Google Play, YouTube, iTunes, Microsoft Store, Amazon Prime, and Vudu. You should make sure to check all of these when the show becomes available so you can figure out whether any of them has a better deal for you.
